The funding comes from the Vanderburgh Medical Alliance. This money will go directly to help with tuition, which school officials say averages nearly $50,000 a year.
"Students can graduate with over 200,000 in debt nowadays," said Elizabeth Kalb. "So, being able to offer this type of opportunity to them is tremendous. They can take it, use it, and really further themselves and focus on education and not worry about finances."
The school will offer all fours years at its Evansville location starting next year. The scholarship will only be available to third and fourth year students.
